East African Piri-Piri Sauce

Home | Recipes | E
Appetizer Dips/spread Sauces


  • 1 lb Unsalted butter
  • 3 Small red chiles
  • 6 Cloves garlic
  • 1 tb Paprika
  • 1/2 ts Chile powder
  • Lemon or lime juice


You like hot? You can increase the heat to "paint-remover" by using hotter chiles or adding to spice quantities. Pound chiles and garlic in a mortar (or process). Add to melted butter (in Africa, usually clarified butler) with paprika and chile powder. Add lime or lemon juice to taste (lime will be better for this one). Mix well. For chicken wings, or breasts, or fish, or prawns, marinate meat for 5-10 minutes, baste with sauce while cooking and spoon sauce over before serving.
